About Our Program

A headache. It can stop your life in its tracks.

Though migraines are the most commonly known and discussed headaches, head pain can take many different forms and can have many different causes.

At the Lewis Headache Center, our migraine and headache specialists have the tools and knowledge to accurately diagnose migraines and other headaches, as well as the experience and technology to minimize their effects on your daily life.

At the most basic level, pain signals being sent by the nerves in various parts of your head to your brain are the cause of headache symptoms. In some instances, like intracranial hypotension, these signals are your body’s way of letting you know about a problem.

In other cases, the signals are a kind of false alarm. In these cases, you feel just as much pain, but it is the nerves themselves that are having a problem—sensing pain when no pain-causing stimuli are present.

Dr. Knievel and her team of neurologists who specialize in migraines, headaches, and headache disorders are adept at finding relief for headaches regardless of their cause. Her team can tailor a migraine or headache treatment plan for the unique features of your diagnosis.
